If reading about Brad Metzger’s incredible test kitchen last June got you jealous, Mo-Chica owner Ricardo Zarate is starting a public pop-up with Bill and Elizabeth Chait called “Test Kitchen” to unveil the working concepts of new chefs and restaurateurs. The Chaits and Zarate’s partner is Locals Sports Bar owner Stephane Bombet, who is teamed up on one of Zarate’s new projects, Moche, planned for Downtown’s Luxe Hotel but recently put on hold. The first guest-chef here, located at Pico’s Spark Woodfire Grill, will be Jordan Kahn, with an early preview of his Vietnamese Red Medicine August 18th-22nd, followed by appearances by Julian Cox representing R26.
